earlier that day, tom not tim duncan

wearing red one piece
she’s sipping red daiquiri
white towel on head

just as you are thinking
it’s about 2:30
man shouts to his wife

“what time is it honey”
at that very minute
she said 2:30

he’s wearing a watch
must not be waterproof
memory bad as mine

“you don’t like go carts
that’s on my bucket list lucy
love the grand prix”

i love pontiac
tom duncan pontiac
greer s.c.

“lucy was an
exceptionally clean baby”
“found out it was us”

“they adapt to you
the third one does what we do”
“first is the hardest”

“it’s about a
twenty minute ride to grand prix
i bet she’ll pass out”

“especially if
we put something in her belly
got some CHILI”

best bucket list
i will not kick the bucket
are numbers one and last

“i want to put on
my my my my my boogie shoes
boogie with you”

6/4 before ringo

who said that

who said everything
happens for a reason not
marilyn monroe

`
that which does not kill
us makes us stronger another
stupid saying

__
everytime i hear
these idiotic expressions
infuriates

until a few months ago, i thought “everything happens for a reason” was some religious saying. then i discover marilyn monroe quoted this,from probably someone else in this lifetime. people give her credit.

it was probably charles lederer , screenwriter ,who said this first, not the heavens, a human person.
people have been fooling me, saying this to me , all of my life .
lederer was jewish and irish ,so why do people always use this to try to convert me.

what in the world would marilyn monroe know about philosophy. neither do i, but heaven help the next person , who says this to me. you guessed :out the window they go.
i mean if you break both legs in an accident ,then you are in pain for the rest of your life, you are weaker.
you have a new fear of cars. i have never broken anything, but i have been in so many car wrecks, i think i have the right to say this.

if it doesn’t kill you over & over ,you don’t become stronger, but angrier, fearful,sad…maybe if it happens once.but the expression doesn’t say once. it is used in the plural ,whenever i hear this.

i place them together , because they go together. they are said at the same time, even though Fredrich Nietzsche said the latter.


* i wasn’t going to use this today & then three minutes ago, some psychopathic coach on law and order SVU just said “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger”,so now i’m mad and i have to say this. that coach belongs under the prison. i am so tired of all the sociopaths on tv.

i’m going to make a tv show where nothing bad ever happens. everyone is always happy. no one is ill.an entire channel is what i want.

which way doth the wind bloweth

yesterday i was
facing wrong direction i
was facing north

i guessed because sign
said you are now entering
north myrtle beach

then i heard a man
sitting behind talking to
his wife on the phone

he told her which way
wind was blowing very hard
confirmed suspicion

i had seen this man
walking same direction as
i was on the beach

the coincidence
of this man telling his wife
exact same timing

guessing bitter wind
learning north south east & west
synchronicity

yankee sign means north
egret paradise is south
stuck in the middle

`

i will never learn
elevator east or west
moving from d.c.

on the very end
front desk not knowing answer
they asked the question

six hundred miles away
one could need ambulance
maybe you could look

whichever way i’m facing
always wrong direction
boring wind poem

now they are busy
guessing which way snow bloweth
cannot move in snow
